As the temperatures begin to dip and winter slowly creeps in, what could be better than a warm and comforting dinner featuring succulent braised meat?

“Meat is muscle, which means much of it is actually naturally going to be tough. Some of the most-flavorful meat comes from the more developed muscles. Braise that meat and you’ll coax out naturally rich flavors. And tougher meats are usually less expensive, so by spending a little bit of time cooking the meat, you’ll be able to save money while eating very well and filling your house with the heady aromas of stews and tender braised roasts. Braised dishes are fantastic company food for these reasons too.”
